Breaking down the U.S-Taliban peace deal | The Hindu In Focus Podcast

The peace deal signed on February 29 between the United States and the Taliban is expected to result in U.S. troops leaving Afghanistan in 14 months, fulfilling U.S. president Donald Trump’s much-vaunted campaign promise of bringing American troops home.

In this episode, we analyse how the peace deal strengthens the Taliban’s hand, is a strategic victory for Pakistan, and why Indian has cause for concern.
